Judah Corsini



Judah Corsini

Born 1/7/86 – Died 7/3/18

On the early morning of July 3rd, 3:45 am or so, Judah appeared to have jumped from the Boren Street bridge, 75′ to the ground below, where he died. A man driving south on I-5 saw Judah’s body and called 911. A WA State trooper arrived on site just moments later and began applying CPR but by the time the ambulance arrived and attempted to revive Judah, he was already dead. His death was recorded as 4:00 am July 3rd. 2018. For the last five years, Judah has been suffering with mental illness and all the struggles that go with it. Several of our family members and one friend remember speaking to Judah just a couple weeks ago and as early as July 2nd, just 24 hours earlier.

My wife Amy and I have setup a memorial service to take place at 10:00 am Friday Aug 3rd, 2018 at St Luke’s Lutheran Church – 3030 Bellevue Way Bellevue, WA 98004

It’s been 6 days now and I still can”t take my mind off him. I am still standing out on the shoulder of the I-5 freeway 6:45 am on 7/4, staring at a two inch thick pile of sand covering the area where my son’s life blood emptyed his broken body.
I can still feel the pressure in my chest, and the tears on my face…and I can still hear my voice screaming his name, “JUDAAHHHHH” and again “JUDAAHHHHH”, as if somehow I might hear his response or a sense of his spirit still present….only the noise of the streaming traffic passing by.
I walked along the freeway for a while, trying to make sense of the image in my head of his last moments, hoping for some insight to understand why!

I say a quiet prayer to my God, asking for His spirit of peace to reveal to me this answer, why? My answer came to me as I was experiencing pain and confusion in my question. Judah was so conflicted in his mind, with a broken spirit, I was experiencing just a small glimpse of the agony and questions he asked God himself as he made his way to the edge, asking why his life had no meaning, why he was so lost and tormented.

I will never stop wondering why my son Judah had to die that way, nor will I stop asking myself how I can take this experience and use it to help someone else avoid the same fate. I have to believe my dear son Judah has no more pain and is whole again. He is with his brother Tommy and a host of others welcoming him home.
That is what sustains me now, every day and hour, when I relive the same thoughts over and over. It’s the only answer that gives me hope or comes close to satisfying my question, why?

This page’s purpose is to allow those who knew Judah a place to honor his memory by sharing stories and memories of Judah’s life and his experiences. Please honor his family and bless his friends by sharing how you knew Judah and a story or moments in time of his life before his struggles.

  1. Judah was my dearest friend. We shared houses, adventures, and memories together. He was generous and full of laughter on good days. He struggled a lot with mental illness but didn’t give up. I love him so much and hope he knows how many of us miss him.

    I’ll never forget him. I will work on my own mental illness struggles in his memory. I look forward to writing him a letter of what I didn’t get to tell him.

    Thank you to his dear father for giving us this site and planning a time for us to honor his life and memory.

  2. Judah was one of my closest cousins. We would talk on the phone all the time. He came to our wedding in Maui and we had so much fun! He tormented my husband, Chris, who is afraid of frogs, by chasing in all across the hotel grounds with the super-sized Hawaiian bullfrogs. He even came to CO to paint our house and we took him with us on a road trip to CA to visit our family. My heart continues to break as I think about my fun, kind and lovable cousin Judah. I always looked forward to his calls. I had just heard from him a few weeks ago and was happy to hear he was doing well. I told him I love him. Now he is gone, and everyday I have questions, unanswerable questions which haunt me. The only peace I receive is knowing that he is no longer suffering from his mental illness. I hope he knows how much I loved him.

    • Thank you Lisa! After the memorial I will send you a link to the memorial video I produced today. I am also recording the memorial service and will send a link to see that once edited and produced.

  3. I am so sorry to hear this. I haven’t known Judah since he was a kid when we all went to church together. My thoughts and prayers go out to your whole family who was so close to mine. Breaks my heart to know the pain you must be experiencing. I wish I had more memories to post here for you guys. But I will pray that this helps others struggling with mental illness to reach out and get help. My heart and prayers for you and your beautiful family!!

  4. My dear brother, I just now found out about your tragic loss. I am so sorry I did not know and was not there to comfort you and your family. Take comfort in the surety that our Lord understood his suffering and was no doubt eager to welcome him into His eternal embrace. As Paul wrote, your son did not die, he merely laid aside this temporary tent to inhabit an eternal home that Christ Himself had prepared for him. Imagine the peace, the joy, the calm that has now permeated his eternal being. Remember fondly who he was but meditate joyfully on who he has become. You will see him again — without separation.

    • Thank you Jon,
      We both know what it is to suffer loss. That said, I receive your words of comfort and peace with joy in my heart.
      I know we don’t latch up much but I would like it very much, as you have the free time. Let me know what days/times you are most free or available to chat.

      Tomas (Julio)
